Negative Effects Of Sex Offender Registries

128 Words1 Page
I believe that the existence of sex offender registries can offer a positive effect especially for families and parents who want to know if a certain community is safe for their children and it also helps police officers narrow down the location if an offender committed another criminal act. If anything, I believe that the registries need to be updated and not abolished completely. The activities of a sex offender should in fact be monitored and tracked. However, registered sex offenders who committed less serious acts should not be registered for a lifetime. One stupid mistake a person made years ago should not make them a sex offender for life. Just like Maine, Connecticut should change their registry so offenders can only be listed for however
